This is a question every potential member must answer for themselves. It may help to read some of our informational pamphlets, starting with  “Am I an addict?”  and “Welcome to NA”.

  • If you’re an addict, NA can help.
  • “Narcotics Anonymous offers recovery to addicts around the world.
  • We focus on the disease of addiction rather than any particular drug.
  • Our message is broad enough to attract addicts from any social class or nationality.
  • When new members come to meetings, our sole interest is in their desire for freedom from active addiction and how we can be of help.” (It Works: How and Why, “Third Tradition”)

If you’re planning to attend your first meeting, you may also be interested in IP #29,“An Introduction to NA Meetings.”
